9980 Rotary District 2020 Conference


Rotary District 9980 Conference 17 -19 April 2020

Next year’s conference format is going to differ from previous conferences. In keeping with the
‘people of action’ catch cry and the year’s theme ‘Rotary connects the World’ It is timely to
introduce a project day. By making use of the people resource of attendees, coupled with an agreed funding amount we will be able to benefit our community agencies and organisations and raise the profile of Rotary.

The organising committee is keen to make this a grass roots style conference that is family friendly
and very affordable. Rotarians are encouraged to bring children, including grown up ones, and
grandchildren along to show how they are making a difference.
